Hey gang, have you heard that over 200 school girls were kidnapped in Nigeria in April by a terrorist group called Boko Haram?
What is a terrorist?
Terrorists are people who may hurt other people to get their own way. They may use violence to force other people to do what they want.
They came in the night, we do not really really know how they did it, but they took the girls.
The girls were taken because Boko Haram think that girls should not go to school.
We’ve heard that people know where the girls are being held but that they cannot get near to them. We are very worried about them, the girls may be scared and they may not be well.
We want to know what is being done to find the girls!
We want to show our support for the girls. They have already shown they have strength and courage – we must show that we have too.
Everyone has the right to go to school. It is important that the girls have this right and that they are returned. We want our government to help bring back the girls and to tell us what they are doing!
How can we show our own support for the girls?
You can go on Twitter or Facebook and join in the campaign using the hashtag #BringBackOurGirls and call for justice for the Nigerian School Girls!
You could also make banners to show your support, like the volunteers at CHANGE.
Together we can #BRING BACK OUR GIRLS!
